Advani calls ‘Third Front’ a fallacy, ‘Fourth Front’ a fantasyApril 10th, 2009 - 4:31 pm ICT by ANI
Patna, Apr 10 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate L K Advani on Friday said that the Third Front is just a ‘fallacy’ and it has no chance of forming the government at the Centre.
Talking to reporters here, Advani said, “I consider the Third Front as a fallacy. If the Third Front is a fallacy, then the Fourth Front will just be a fantasy.”
An alliance of Leftist and regional parties known as the “Third Front” was formally launched to challenge the Congress and the BJP.
In his appeal to the Hindi speaking people, Advani said that in Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh there has been less progress. The UPA led regime at the Centre left these states backward.
“There is development in different states of the country, but in these four big Hindi speaking states, there is no progress. We know the initials of these states are Bi for Bihar, Ma for Madhya Pradesh, R for Rajasthan and U for Uttar Pradesh, which can be now called as Bimaru (ill). They are undeveloped. Constantly, we have been insulted,” said Advani.
Advani will be seeking a fifth term from Gandhinagar after his victory from this constituency in 1991, 1998, 1999 and 2004.
His main rivals are Congress nominee Suresh Patel and noted danseuse Mallika Sarabhai, who is making her electoral debut as an independent.
Patel is Congress MLA from Kalol for the second time. (ANI)
